And now the end is near
So I face the final curtain
My friends, I'll say it clear
And state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exception

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
Shed my tears, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
Find it all so confusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got
If not himself, then he has not
To show the world I'll stunt in heels
In others words I'm rolling on wheels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

    General CommentI love this song, and Robbie sings it well, although, obviously, it cannot live up to Frank Sinatra's version.

    "For what is a man, what has he got?
    If not himself, then he has naught.
    To say the things he truly feels;
    And not the words of one who kneels.
    The record shows I took the blows -
    And did it my way!"

    I love this verse!
